Street smarts, space suits and green suits: favorites week ending 06.18.17
As usual my highlights of the week begin with (hot) walks with pup around the neighborhood. I've been spying spiky street art signs by RS70 lately. I love them. Also, my street is in serious need of traffic control. There are no crosswalks for blocks along S. Santa Fe Ave and dangerous jaywalking ensues. The thumbnail of this post is a sticker that I've seen a few different variations of around the Arts District. Such awesome collaging!
After checking out some Bergamont galleries in Santa Monica, Nadge and I visited TAM (Torrance Art Museum). It was my first time there and it was worth the trip for the opening of their exhibition "WHY ART MATTERS!" with a performance by faux astronauts Mobile Arts Platform. The show is really strong. I especially loved the work by Henry Taylor. Who is super cool.
The last stop of the night was Dalton Warehouse. My co-worker at The Broad, Daniel Schubert (pictured below in the blue trousers and with awesome hair) is part of DW collective which houses artists' studios and hosts exhibitions. It's a great spot and vibe with great talent. Super pleased that FULL BLEDE Issue Two: The City will launch here next week. (July 28! Save the date.)
I snapped a picture of a man in a green silk jumpsuit in front of Ellsworth Kelly's Green Angle at The Broad. It was just too much.
Alex at MOCA lead a group of us on a fantastic tour of Kerry James Marshall's MASTRY exhibition. This show is the best thing I've seen all year in L.A. I'm sorry to see it go, but super grateful that I was able to stand in front of this work on several occassions.
